How Alcumus SafeContractor can help manufacturing organisations

Health & safety compliance

In 2022, the manufacturing sector reported 123 fatal incidents, marking a 28% increase in work-related fatalities from the previous year. This alarming statistic underscores the urgent need to address health and safety challenges, particularly those related to outsourcing. Prioritising health and safety in the industry is now more critical than ever.

Supply chain compliance and visibility

Supply chain compliance and visibility are vital in UK manufacturing. Adhering to regulatory standards mitigates risk and boosts efficiency. Real-time tracking ensures timely deliveries and reduces disruptions. By maintaining high compliance and transparency, UK manufacturers build stronger, more trustworthy relationships, fostering a sustainable business environment. 

Managing a diverse supply chain

Manufacturing organisations often work with a wide range of contractors of various sizes, specialisations, and regions.  Small and solo contractors, in particular, may find compliance processes burdensome due to time constraints. Therefore, it’s crucial to simplify the compliance process for these contractors to ensure they can easily demonstrate their adherence to standards.
